Bank Account requirements

Billdoesbelize saw your video on requirements for a Bank account.

I can get two bank references with no issues.

But where I have been living for the past five years,

the utility is included in the rent .... any ideas how I can navigate

around that requirement?  What other options do I have.  Thanks.

I would suggest getting a letter from your landlord that explains that and provides a good reference and indicates that rent (utilities included) were paid by you on time.  The other option may be to wait a month or two after arriving in Belize and then provide a paid local utility bill.

Opening a bank account is not as easy anymore as it was three years ago when we went through the experience. Non residents are having a harder time with all processes and having to jump through more hoops to accomplish things. There are ways around having a bank account (ATM Machines) as well, it is not that big an inconvenience as many day to day transactions will be cash anyway.

I hope this helps.

Bill thanks for the financial insights.
Greatly appreciate the options provided.
:)
